December is off to a strong start. 

We kicked off the weekend by meeting up with friends we haven't seen in years. It was great seeing them again and seeing our kids having fun playing together. 

The outing was exactly what I needed to fill my cup... especially as we head into the end-of-term whirlwind. The next week and a half are full of school events for the kids, so I'm grateful we had a chance for a mini-reunion with people who mean the world to us.

Now it's time to put my head down and focus on my to-do list. With Christmas right around the corner, there's still a ton to get done. 😬 For now, though, here's our menu plan for the week.

If you're curious to see what's on deck for dinner at our house, then keep reading!
